For the Saint Mary’s Community

Share Your Stories

We are always on the lookout for stories within our community so we can work hard to engage media outlets in sharing them in print, online and digital platforms. If you have a story, research expertise or an opinion you would like to share with the media, our team can assist with writing press releases, editorial pieces, prepare videos and photos and then share them in an engaging as well as compelling way. Faculty and staff can submit an Project Intake Form.

Media Training

Our team can help to prepare members of the university for speaking with the media.  Through training and interview tips, our goal is to refine your story for a general audience while being strategically engaging with the media.

Photography and Video

We can help you find excellent photographers and videographers to help you tell your story more effectively and professionally.
